SECO Mind LAUNCHES Clea

SECO Mind announces the launch of Clea, a software-as-a-service available through subscription, offering a genuinely integrated suite of AI services within the reach of companies of any and every size.

What is Clea

The integration of Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things, Edge and cloud computing services through a single device and dedicated suite represents an opportunity for business growth, by optimizing efficiency, strengthening productivity, and minimizing maintenance times and costs.

Advantages of Clea

With Clea it’s possible, for example, to perform predictive maintenance on machines, or anticipate when they will require repairs. Other areas of application include data analysis in an IoT context, helping make business decisions increasingly “data driven.”

Relevant Industrial Sectors

Applicable in any sector that calls for the use of digital products, Clea is already in the application and experimentation phase in the vending machine, coffee machine, and refrigerated transport sectors.

Technology

Clea is activated through the installation of Easy Edge, a new microcontroller with mobile connectivity (LTE-M/NB-IoT/2G + Wi-Fi, BT), low-energy consumption and geolocation. Once it has been installed on an industrial or commercial machine, it is able to execute Artificial Intelligence algorithms, transforming any device, such as a coffee machine (https://youtu.be/dNvFJyhOoN4) or vending machine (https://youtu.be/o3CpdiMvM-E), into a smart machine.
